  2. Let me know what you find out. I'd much rather drive to longview than go north!
  3. If you don't mind me asking, who are you using for machine work?

    No worries, I ordered one along with some sealing washers that I needed.

    He is a great guy, my buddies and I have been working with him for 20 years now for machine work and parts. I remember about 10 years ago I took my Camaro to the 1/8 mile track in Toutle. They used to have Friday and Saturday night drags that went on until midnight sometimes. All they had at the time was a Christmas tree and a white line at the end of the track. There were no lights and I'd never been on or seen the track in the daytime. When I got to the staging lanes I asked Darrin how long the shutdown was. I'm sure he could tell I was a bit nervous. Without hesitation he jumped in the passenger seat and said lets make a pass! I'll show you where everything is! So down the track we went, without incident. After the pass he said I know this thing makes 550 on the motor, easy. I tested his passenger seat calculation at Portland a few weeks later. He was right on according to ET and trap speed.

    Yes sir, it sure does. I've been keeping and eye out for a cream puff mid to late 70s ford 2wd with a 460/C6 in Red to swap onto my 76 4x4 frame. Darrin Bonaham (spelling) is the owner at Britco, 360-330-2434. They are on facebook but no longer have a website that I could find.

    I'm fairly confident you can buy a dyno'd 400hp 383 from Britco machine for around 2k. Even at that its a tough flip. As gas prices continue to rise sales on these things seem to plummet. Not trying to be a downer as I love those trucks but I watch these and the 70s fords fairly regularly. When fuel goes up these truck prices come way down. Just some food for thought.

    Just got a email back from Rob at torktek. Very quick response, literally minutes. He recommends the OFV060. I'll take yours of your hands if your wanting to sell or I can just order one.

    What did you use for your overflow? I like the idea of reshaping the VP return.

    I think I will try to call Torktek to see what they recommend. Thank you for letting me know how you like yours. I've read other places folks like them as well but its just not the same as hearing it from someone here. I did consider a mechanical but for the power I want to make its not quite enough. It will mostly be a toy, but I do plan on driving it fairly often.

    Well, I should have just listened to Austin in the first place. The fittings I ordered probably could have been made to work but if it ever developed a leak the pump would have to come off. So back those fittings went. I ordered a kit from crazy carls with the restricted fitting to move the feed line. My next issue is the fuel return on the Ppump. I don't have the stock overflow fitting. I've been digging around and it seems many like the torkteknoligy overflow valves. http://www.torkteknology.com/cummins-fuel-system/ I'll probably be going with a airdog pump. What do you guys think I should do for the return setup?

    I'm digging it Ben! Can't wait to get down there with some $$$$ for the turbo stuff and check it out!

    Thanks for pointing this out. I checked the housings the other day and they are different. I'm going to swap them out. I've got a new oil cooler I'm going to throw in as well.
